I have a question. I am 32 years old, at the age of 28 I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. After multiple attempts with clomid, progesterone, ovadril, (horrible side effects with medicine) and IUI. I have not been on fertility medication in several years, and decided to take some time off while in I am in school to let be will be, before we try again. Last month about a week after my period ended and for the following 3 weeks we had intercourse. A few days after I had dark brown blood discharge after I urinated, almost a dry blood and only after I wiped one time. Ever since then I have been feeling bloated, and gassy, my breast feel full as well as more firm than normal, I have been nauseated almost every day and as of right now I am a few days late. I did take a hpt but it came up negative. I didn't know if I may have tested too early or maybe my hcg levels would be to low to test too soon because of previous fertility issues. Do you think I should retest? Thank you!
According to the symptoms you have described(bloated feeling,nausea,breast fullness)it seems that you might have conceived.Some woman start showing the symptoms of pregnancy as early as after a week of conceiving.But it would be too early for the test to show up.Also urine pregnancy tests are not confirmatory.
Wait for a week for the periods.If missed get a Blood HCG test done for pregnancy determination as it is a confirmatory test.Kindly see a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
Wishing you All the Best
